A staple of many childhoods in Canada, the Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwich is celebrated on April 2nd. The humble peanut is a source of healthy fats and protein, but isn’t truly a nut at all, rather a legume related to peas and soybeans. Modern peanut butter has a surprisingly Canadian history, being first patented in Montreal by Marcellus Gilmore Edson in 1884. This box from our collection that once held Planters Peanut Butter jars (989.38.11) would be an ideal start to a stack of sandwiches. Don’t forget the milk!
